Unique to the South African market, the 3.0 XLE was the top of the Cortina range over there. It is fitted with the 3.0 Essex V6 (hence the 'E') and automatic gearbox. This car is in a very original condition, even down to the paint, although I'm sure it has had some paintwork over the years. Panel fit is good all round and it still has the original wheels with the XLE hubcaps. The interior is immaculate and is the dark tan vinyl. Some modifications have been made to the suspension including springs and bushes to make the handling more secure. A very rare car, I have not seen another in the UK, and don't know even if there are any others!
